Plastic Free Zone

Plastic free zone, this word sounds unusual for Bangalorean’s as we only know plastic zones everywhere in the city till date, but in future we may get used for this kind of word too…

Great News!!! From 01-Apr-07 Karnataka pollution controls board & Horticulture department had brought a BAN on using plastic in Lalbagh, so our ever loved garden Lalbagh will be plastic free zone. I expect that the rule should be very strict & people follow it.

Thanks for Pollution controls board & Horticulture department to give us a Bangalore’s first plastic free zone “Lalbagh”

    But mobile phone is also made up of plastic, even button of shirt and blouse is also made up of plastic, so will we have to keep them outside before entering the Lalbagh ?

    BUT_HOW:Many places you can see No Smoking board that does not mean you have to throw cigarates before entering to the place.
    Even Mobiles, Shirts & Blouse are banned in case if you are planning to throw it in Lalbagh, Hope no one dare to trow mobiles or bloses in the park.

    Yup agree with you Shadow. It is about stopping plastic waste ..that not about removing plastic from your life :-)
